how jasmine tea is made with milk
There are various ways how jasmine tea is made. You can make it even without any other tea. You can add various other ingredients to it like vanilla, chocolate and other sweeteners. For starters we will make a common jasmine tea based on green tea.
Water, preferably filtered
Yes, it’s that simple to create a basic and amazing drink based on jasmine flowers. Start boiling the water and if you have an electric kettle set it to 175°F. If you boil jasmine tea for too long in very hot water you’ll get a more bitter taste.
In general it’s best to keep the teapot at a stable temperature. When you have boiled the water, throw some of it’s boiled water in the teapot. Swirl it around to heat up the tea pot. When done throw out the water and add the jasmine tea in the teapot. Finally add the hot water.
Close the tea pot and steep the water for another 3 minutes. This will make sure the green tea with jasmine flowers is distributed all throughout the water. Creating that lovely delicious taste with every cup of tea. Don’t let it steep for too long as the tea will start to get a more bitter taste.
Now strain the leaves and pour in your nice cup of hot jasmine tea!
